UK based Non-Governmental Organisation, Lord Taverner has thrown its weight behind Community Sports and Educational Development (CSED – Initiative) for donating sporting materials, books to the Internally Displaced Person’s, IDP Camp at Uhogua near Benin City in Edo State.
National Cordinator of CSED, Edema Fuludu made the disclosure after the visit which took place on January 2 to kick start the organisation’s annual activities.
“Yes I was there with my family 2nd Jan 2020. We have been going there since early 2019. We have given Table tennis board, footballs, jerseys, books, badminton rackets and nets, handballs, Scrabble sets, Chess boards basketballs, Volleyballs, Cricket equipment and we did liaise with the Edo State Sports Commission Chairman Barr Dudu Orumen for sports council coaches that went to introduce the sports and trained them for five days in a row.
“The biggest sport we have brought is Netball and those girls on this pix are the pioneers we are training to reintroduce Netball to schools in Nigeria. We will be building a standard court in that camp for Netball this January. The basic intention of the program is to integrate the displaced and less privileged into mainstream society using sports as a tool,” he added.
